Top 10 Most Peaceful People in History

10 Most Peaceful People in History

1 – Jesus of Nazareth

Jesus Christ of Nazareth is the most peaceful person that has ever lived. People might want to argue that point but Christ never personally killed or sanctioned the killing of anyone when he was alive. As a matter of fact, Christ encouraged people to be as peace with each other. He also is known as the Prince of Peace. Christ wanted people to live peacefully during their time on Earth. He understood that this attribute was necessary for helping people to live the best lives possible without being in conflict with their fellow man.

2 – Mohandas Gandhi

During the early part of the 20th century many Indian people wanted to be from British rule. Mohandas Gandhi was a leading figure in a movement that helped the nation of India to achieve this goal. One of the key tenants of this man’s philosophy for removing the British from power was non-violence. Gandhi was no passivist or coward. He just understood that his people would not gain their freedom if they continued to meet force with force. They tried that method many times before and were never successful. Gandhi’s way of peace not only impacted his people, it also impacted the world.

3 – William Wilberforce

William Wilberforce was one of the leading figures of the slave trade that took place during the 18th century. Wilberforce was a slaver who enjoyed his work. Then one day he had an encounter with Christianity and its central figure, Jesus Christ. This changed his view on the matter. Wilberforce became a Christian and a short time later he began to speak and act out against the slave trade. Wilberforce did not lead an army or cause a rebellion to make change.

Instead, he used the power of politics and his influence to change the course of history. Wilberforce already knew that there would be no peace unless people ended the slave trade. In those days, slavery was an institution that was destined to be chaotic and troubling. There could never be real peace in that type of lifestyle.

Martin Luther King Jr. was a Christian who believed in the teachings of Jesus Christ. He also took to Gandhi’s methods of non-violence to help change America’s racial institutions. King was considered the premiere Civil Rights leader in this country. He even has a holiday named after him. King knew that as long as there was racial inequality, peace would never exist.

So, he used his faith in Christ and Gandhi’s teachings to help change the current social order in America. While King’s contributions might not have made everything peaceful, his push for equality helped to significantly reduce the amount of tensions and problems that would have resulted if America was left in the old racial system.

Martin Luther King Jr Quote

 

5 – Mikhail Gorbachev

Gorbachev forced peace into the world because he realized that the Cold War had to come to an end. He even let the eastern countries that the Soviet Union had been controlling for years go free.

The Soviet’s time was over and it was time for the Russians to take their nation in whole new direction. He is one amongst the Top 10 Most Peaceful Men Ever until 2017.

63 – Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

64 – Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, ‘Love your enemies.’ It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load. That’s love, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love.

73 – Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction.

74 – Science investigates ; religion interprets. Science gives man knowledge, which is power ; religion gives man wisdom, which is control. Science deals mainly with facts ; religion deals mainly with values. The two are not rivals.

97 – There is nothing more tragic than to find an individual bogged down in the length of life, devoid of breadth.

98 – Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.

99 – Use me, God. Show me how to take who I am, who I want to be, and what I can do, and use it for a purpose greater than myself.

100 – Violence as a way of achieving racial justice is both impractical and immoral. I am not unmindful of the fact that violence often brings about momentary results.

107 – We must come to see that the end we seek is a society at peace with itself, a society that can live with its conscience.

108 – We must concentrate not merely on the negative expulsion of war but the positive affirmation of peace.

109 – We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

110 – We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.

111 – We must use time creatively, in the knowledge that the time is always ripe to do right.

112 – We who in engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive.

113 – We will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.

114 – What is wrong in the world today is that the nations of the world are engaged in a bitter, colossal contest for supremacy.

115 – Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until you are what you ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.

116 – Whatever your life’s work is, do it well. A man should do his job so well that the living, the dead, and the unborn could do it no better.

117 – When we let freedom ring, when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, ‘Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!

118 – When you are right you cannot be too radical; when you are wrong, you cannot be too conservative.

119 – World peace through nonviolent means is neither absurd nor unattainable. All other methods have failed. Thus we must begin anew. Nonviolence is a good starting point. Those of us who believe in this method can be voices of reason, sanity, and understanding amid the voices of violence, hatred, and emotion. We can very well set a mood of peace out of which a system of peace can be built.

120 – You will change your mind ; You will change your looks ; You will change your smile, laugh, and ways but not matter what you change, you will always be you.

7 – Montgomery Bus Boycott – December 5, 1955

“Right here in Montgomery, when the history books are written in the future, somebody will have to say, ‘There lived a race of people, a black people, “fleecy locks and black complexion.” a people who had the moral courage to stand up for their rights. And thereby they injected a new meaning into the veins of history and of civilization.’ And we’re gonna do that. God grant that we will do it before it is too late.”
